"I believe the rights of women and girls is the unfinished business of the 21st Century"
Hillary Rodham Clinton
International Women’s Day (March 8th) is a global event celebrating women’s achievements - whatever they may be - whilst calling for gender equality.
This year (2017), International Women's Day takes on a renewed energy — a wave of new marches and actions we may all participate in for solidarity around the world.

When women support other women, great things happen.
